A new biodiversity project at Ballygraigue Court
Residents at Clúid’s Ballygraigue Court scheme in Nenagh, Tipperary, supported by their local Housing Officer, are in the process of considering a new biodiversity themed face lift for the green area in their neighbourhood.
To get started, Linda and Triona Gillick, as well as other families from Ballygraigue Court, embarked on a biodiversity field trip. The group went to visit Ger and Debbie in Sleaty Park, Carlow to fact find about all the magnificent work that has been carried out at Sleaty Park’s communal green area.
Linda and Triona commented “We had a very productive and honest day and it was wonderful to hear Ger and Debbie’s experience.“
The trip was in collaboration with Tom Darcy from Silver Arch Family Resource Centre and Susan Vickers, Clúid’s Energy and Environmental Manager. The visit was set up to learn from the Sleaty Park residents, to hear all about their journey so far in creating a biodiversity garden for the community to enjoy. The visit provided invaluable insight into the work entailed in undertaking such a project.
Susan tells us “It’s wonderful to see residents collaborating, sharing ideas and encouraging each other to enhance their communities and pass on the wealth of knowledge developed from each project.”
